The first time I met Tina she was praying her Rosary. I knew then she was not only beautiful on the outside but also on the inside. She was my mother-in-law for 38 years and she always treated me with love and respect. Most importantly, she had great Faith and such wisdom. I’ll miss her and I thank God for placing her in my life.
